I've just come in from ´╗┐Nagshead reserve. We need the woodburning stove going this morning, so I popped in on my way down to start it, and went for a walk while it got going. As I headed up the main path I just had to stop. The colours against the pale blue sky were just amazing, and everything felt so still, except for the sound of last nights rain dripping through the leaves. I turned round and just smiled to myself as I watched the thin wisp of smoke dance away from the centre. What a morning!

The flock of redpoll are still keeping close to the centre, and there were plenty of squirrels on the path testing out the sweet chestnuts.
